Galileo Orbiter Plasma Science Experiment Jupiter Fitted Parameters Bundle (PDS)


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere


This bundle consists of all of the fitted parameters (both good and bad) for fitting an ion species to the Galileo Plasma Science Experiment (PLS) that were found during a grant from NASA's Jupiter Data Analysis Program (NNX09AE03G). The 'good' results were used to publish: Bagenal, F., R. J. Wilson, S. Siler, W. R. Paterson, and W. S. Kurth (2016), Survey of Galileo plasma observations in Jupiter's plasma sheet, J. Geophys. Res. Planets, 121, 871-894, doi:10.1002/2016JE005009. Please cite this paper and this PDS bundle if you use this data. Please note: The data in this bundle have been reviewed by the coauthors of Bagenal, et al. 2016 and their method and figures passed the journal's peer review. These data have not yet completed PDS peer review, and are uncertified. Data available online at:
